Dual Diagnoses of Youth Substance Use Disorders and Depression: The Nature of the Association and Treatment Implications
This webinar will review the intersection of substance use disorders (SUD) and diagnosed depression within young people in the US. Since the mid-1990s, Major Depressive Episodes (MDE) increased in terms of percentage and the rate of those with MDE who experience severe impairment. Additionally, SUD presents in 3 of 10 youth experiencing MDE, which makes this subset of youth population with Co-occurring disorders (COD) at an increased risk of suicidal behavior more than due to each uni-diagnosis alone. COD have also compounding effects on personal life quality, wellness and on response to treatment. Finally, recent developments in interventions for youth with COD will be presented.
